On Saturday, Oct 15th, twenty+ volunteers from ILC and Project Mercy traveled to the outskirts of Tijuana to build a new house for the Gomez/Perez family.
It was such a wonderful day. The weather was perfect, our team was hard working and completed the job in eight hours. The family was so thankful for our efforts and all we gave them. The highlight of the day happened just as we were about to leave, when Pastor Luther was asked to baptize a 2 month old baby, the granddaughter of the homeowners. Making due with what we had on hand, Pastor performed the baptism with translation being done by a member of our group. It was a very memorable moment. View the video of the baptism.
Thank you to all the fantastic volunteers, who worked very hard all day and built a great home. Thanks also to the Piecemakers for the beautiful quilts. And, special thanks to the ILC congregation for the generous donations that made this project possible, as well as the prayers and words of support we took with us to Mexico.
